Three years ago, I spent the summer living on Chancellor Street in Charlottesville – dangerously close to those delicious Bodo’s Bagels – and was halfway through college. That’s the summer I started my blog (originally and aptly named, Soliloquy), which was, is and will continue to be a collection of personal narratives and anecdotes during a years-long process of self-reflection and discovery.
To celebrate the milestone, I will be blogging every even-numbered day in June, starting today. The idea for the blogathon was brought about when my middle- and high-school friend, Abraham, Facebook-messaged me out of the blue one night to tell me how much he enjoyed reading the blog, and asked me why I stopped the “First-Date Friday” series. His message reminded me how surprised I am again and again by those who’ve reached out and told me how much the enjoy reading the posts, so this blogathon is for all of you. And good news for fellow FDF fans: I will be doing at least one of those during the June blogathon.
Please comment below (you can do so anonymously) if you have any blog requests. I will also be taking questions via my Formspring.
Also, major shout out to my biggest fan, Sejal Bojani, for being such a loyal, appreciate reader, and for all the readers out there for making all this worthwhile. I hope the June blogathon will be all that you’d hoped.
